RSA Conference - Exhibitors & Sponsors

RSA 2012

Our 15th biennial national conference, will be held at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia, PA, on 25-28 May 2012. The conference planners expect at least 1,200 attendees, making this the largest meeting of its kind anywhere to focus on rhetoric research and pedagogy. Our conference attracts scholars from English, speech communication, composition studies, philosophy, history, and political science, among others. Some attendees may have published with your press, and most teach in departments that offer instruction in areas treated in your publications. 


We invite you to affirm your support for scholarship in rhetoric and to publicize your organization to current and future leaders in the field through a half- or full-page advertisement in the conference program that will be distributed to all attendees or through an exhibit table in the main hall. 

We also hope you will consider sponsoring one of the special activities at the conference, some of which include:

• the opening session and reception featuring Kathleen Hall Jamieson & Karlyn Kohrs Campbell, • the conference luncheon featuring Jacqueline Jones Royster • special events for graduate students • conference seminar featuring Laurent Pernot • refreshment breaks For a listing of all possible sponsorships, CLICK HERE.

All sponsors will be listed and acknowledged in the conference program. Sponsors of the opening reception, luncheon, seminar, and other sessions also will be acknowledged at those events. 

Deadline for program advertisements and exhibit space is March 15, 2012. If you are interested in one of these opportunities, please  CLICK HERE to submit your request. If you have any questions, please send an email to Kim Newman, conference assistant, at 

Thank you. We look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia! 

Best wishes,
